In case you missed it, Empower Illinois’ EmpowerXChange® platform is one of this year’s Top 100 Finalists for the 20th annual Chicago Innovation Awards, which recognize Chicago’s most innovative new products and services.

EmpowerXChange is a patented, custom designed technology platform and scholarship management system that provides transparency to scholarship families and participating schools, making the scholarship-granting process as seamless as possible. Each family and school have an individualized portal, which allows them to track the entire scholarship process, including a student’s place in line for a scholarship, the award stage of the scholarship, and the final dollar amount of the scholarship.

EmpowerXChange primarily serves students, families, schools, and donors participating in Illinois’ Invest in Kids Tax Credit Scholarship Program. The EmpowerXChange technology was built in partnership with Chicago-based software development agency LaunchPad Lab.

Our EmpowerXChange platform is nominated for several categories, one of them being the People’s Choice Award.
